We're very much looking forward to tomorrow evening's performances at Dorchester Abbey, including Tchaikovsky's gorgeous Serenade for Strings! To get you in the mood, here are 4 intriguing facts about Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky...
🎶 Tchaikovsky began his career as... a lawyer. He graduated from the Imperial College of Jurisprudence aged 19, but after a few years decided to take off the wig and pursue musical education instead.
🎶 Surprisingly given its popularity today, Swan Lake was not well received during Tchaikovsky's lifetime, drawing criticism for its choreography and score. It was only after Tchaikovsky died that it began to gain the recognition it still enjoys.
🎶 Tchaikovsky skipped his final exam at the St Petersburg Conservatory, which so enraged the then-Director that he refused to grant Tchaikovsky his diploma. It wasn't until new leadership took over that Tchaikovsky received his qualification... five years late.
🎶 When New York's Carnegie Hall opened in 1891, Tchaikovsky was there conducting the New York Philharmonic at the opening ceremony. The orchestra performed his March Solennelle, written for the coronation of Russia's Alexander III.
If you'd like to hear this lawyer-turned-composer's beautiful music, join us tomorrow online or in person at Dorchester Abbey! Book and find out more 👇
You might have seen my Dad in my new video about the making of the album! He came down from Cumbria to Abbey Road to watch the recording session with Aurora Orchestra and this is us at the end of the long day! I feel extremely grateful to have come from a family who value, appreciate and love music. I wouldn’t be playing the saxophone if it weren’t for my Dad! He was teaching percussion at the Barracudas Carnival Arts Centre in Barrow and I went along with him to work twice a week and picked up saxophone when I was 7. The whole centre was about bringing the community together through music, dance and joy and my love for sharing he magic of music has come from there. I was encouraged and supported so much by my family so it was brilliant to have my Dad at the session! I know that not everyone is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experience music and the arts and, even though I believe it should be a basic right, I feel extremely grateful to have had that opportunity and support. Music is intrinsic to our humanity, amplifies momentous occasions, can console, uplift, inspire and unite us and I feel lucky to have learned so much from it. Thanks Dad for showing me the way! ❤️

Going live again tomorrow at 5:30 (GMT+1) Those of you who can count will notice there are 10 of us! We are really happy to have our good friend Plinio @plinionandes share lockdown with us. He shares a flat in London with Braimah and me and he’s like a brother to both of us. The three of us travelled up to Nottingham together a few weeks ago as Plinio was unable to fly back and join his family in Brazil - so we have adopted him for now!:) Plinio and I play lots of chamber music together so we look forward to sharing some of this with you as well as other combinations of us all in future live streams. I hope all of you are staying well.
